Ryan Jack would make a great Rangers captain under Steven Gerrard

Rangers midfielder Ryan Jack has been given a huge vote of confidence by the club after he was handed a contract extension on Friday.

The Gers have confirmed that the Scotland international has has penned a new deal that keeps him at Ibrox until 2021.

He’s made quite the impact since he joined in 2017 after his departure from Aberdeen, with fans responding well to his work-rate and commitment in the centre of the park.

Jack is one of the most consistent performers for the Light Blues and the central midfielder helps dictate play in possession when on form, while he offers a lot of help to the defence too.

Jack is a lifelong Rangers fan that would be an ideal candidate to be the club captain, something that the extra responsibility may even bring more out of him.

Current captain James Tavernier is a vital player within the ranks and indispensable at right-back, but a more vocal figure in Jack makes for a more obvious leader.

Gerrard himself was a successful leader from midfielder as a player and should put faith in Jack to be his general on the pitch.
